Nice find! I'd love to have one of these with a RTT on it!
where did you find it, and how much did you pay for it?
jealous. thats a gem for sure!
Yeah I feel very lucky to have found this...
was located in IE near Cherry Valley/Oak Glen. (recent burn area)
Damn nice thing for me... it was only about 25 miles from my house !!
The seller was obviously a very wealthy man by the looks of his estate.
He mentioned he was in the communications tower building business and it was good to him.
Was easy to see that.
In his craigslist listing he was asking $ 800. for the M100.
I had missed that listing for several days, because I had limited my search to "utility trailers". When I broadened that search to simply "trailers" and looked thru what seemed a million listings...
there it was.
I called and talked to him over the phone and he was saying someone had already offered him $ 500. and that he had turned that down.
'cause as he said, "I paid $ 600. for it in 2000... I'd like to get my money back outta it."
So I offered him $ 600.
and without any further wrangling.. He said Yes !
Took a drive up to look at it first person... and gave him $ 100. deposit and returned the very next day with the remainder.
Guess I didn't wanna chance he'd change his mind.
Cost me $ 34.00 for the DMV fees (title change)...
came with CA. lifetime trailer plates
the sweetener of the deal was when the previous owner called me back the very next week and told me he found a note in his files... that some spare parts to the trailer were still in the barn, and if I wanted them... I just need come get 'em.
so now I got the hand brake lever and the original electrical hook up that would plug into an M38-(A1) heep. Tho' I have no use for the later.
just so you all know...
I may be a little slow getting out the starting gate on this clean up.
But once I get all the holes patched up... things will go quicker.
